David Zepeda is a beloved telenovela star from Mexico known for his devilish good looks, booming voice, and chiseled 6’1 physique. He has nearly 3 million Instagram followers, with an additional 1 million followers on Facebook.
For the past eight years, the 45-year-old leading man has been in a relationship with Mexican actress Lina Radwan. That is, until last November when the couple quietly split up. Now, multiple Spanish language media outlets are reporting that the breakup was over Zepeda’s alleged bisexuality.
“At first, David was very nice with Lina, but over time he transformed,” a source who claims to be a close friend of the actor tells celebrity gossip rag TV Notas. “Especially in the last year, the relationship became hell for her.”
“David is bisexual,” the source continues. “One day he told me: ‘I also like men’, but he can not freely exercise his preference because his family is from Sonora and is very old-fashioned.”
In 2015, Zepeda made headlines when a five-minute video of him masturbating leaked online. The video is still easily accessible today.
“David considers that he has an image to take care of as a telenovela lover,” the source says. “When the sex video was leaked of him masturbating, he was very concerned that it would bring consequences in his career.”
In addition to appearing on several popular telenovelas, as well as a handful of American television shows including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, ER, and The Shield, Zepeda appeared nude in a group sex scene in the 2004 film Desnudos. He was also appeared naked on stage in the play Cuatro XXXX.
Zepeda has not yet responded to these latest bisexual rumors.
